We're now building simple pusher fan packages that are ready to bolt onto any small jon boat. Cruise through shallow water with submerged debris and vegetation with no moving parts in the water! Our first model is the Bandit 44, and we're also developing a higher power Bandit 60 for larger jon boats such as 1448, 1648, 1654, etc.
